American Community Survey Data Access & Use
Starting with Census 2010, the decennial census and annual American Community Survey (ACS) are integrally connected. This section is focused on topics concerning Census 2010/ACS data access and use, applications using these data and the integration and analysis of these data with other data. Census 2010 has its own focus page.
